Digital education is most effective when delivered earlier in life.

Access to the digital world is now a basic necessity – just like water, food, heat and shelter. In 2022, we launched a digital inclusion program aimed at addressing the 1 in 7 young New Zealanders who are digitally excluded.

Being a lessor of large amounts of technology means that we are uniquely placed to help close the digital equity gap and make a life changing difference to some. This program plans to enable our large scale corporate and government customers to contribute a portion of devices as they come off a Quadrent Green Lease.

Quadrent will match this contribution creating a considerable pool of high spec, high quality tech devices that can be repurposed and provided to those in our communities that need it most. Our efforts will be focussed alongside a number of large charitable organisations to help create a much more empowered future for every young Kiwi.

Vodafone Aotearoa Foundation - Quadrent

Vodafone Aotearoa Foundation

Vodafone Aotearoa Foundation and Vodafone launched a digital equity programme, Toitū te Toki, which is focused on supporting better educational outcomes for young people.

The programme asks organisations to donate their no longer used laptops which will then be refreshed and provided to students in low decile colleges for use during the school year.

The programme kicked off with a trial in two colleges in Invercargill with support from Quadrent.

The support Quadrent have provided has been essential. Toitū te Toki would not have been possible without their help, from sourcing and co-funding devices, to ensuring the right OS licensing, Quadrent have been exceptionally enthusiastic, responsive and consistently keen to help. Their team has demonstrated a real passion for utilising the resources and relationships they have to create better outcomes for young people in Aotearoa.

Te Rourou, Vodafone Aotearoa Foundation is extremely grateful for the support Quadrent is providing and we look forward to supporting many young people together, as Toitū te Toki grows, and scales around the country.
